Skiing in the Beautiful Italian Dolomites

Having shared a bit already about my recent skiing holiday I thought I would share some of my favourite photos. Loving photography as I do and trying to put some of my new found skills to the test I ended up taking over 400 photos! Many were of friends or just didn't come out well, so don't worry I won't post them all here. I will however share a few of my favourite scenery ones.

First though I should set the scene, I was staying in a small resort in the Dolomites in Italy which gave us access to 12 different ski areas and 1,200 km of slopes meaning we could ski in a different place every day and enjoy so much of the natural beauty. The scenery is very different to places I've skied in the Alps as there are various stark rock formations jutting out on the horizon. It is however just a beautiful and I hope that come across in my photos.

Italian Icicles

Whilst away I couldn't resist taking some pictures of the icicles hanging off the roof above our balcony, the patterns, light and the colours in them and the snow around them are amazing. There is so much beauty to be found in nature and I think sometimes we forget that, I therefore love taking photos of my surroundings whether its icicles like these, trees or even clouds it is fascinating to see the natural shapes and patterns. I think these pictures are the perfect example of this I hope you agree!

What do you like to take pictures of?

What I wore on the Slopes

Sorry for being a bit quiet over the last couple of weeks, but I was away skiing in Italy which led to me getting a cold and feeling a bit under the weather. I'm better now though and to make up for the silence I thought I would write a few different posts relating to my trip, including some photos taken.
